RE: Peanut Butter and Jelly Cheesecake in March 21 2013 newsletter. Judy in Montana, how much sugar?
Thanks to “Delores in nela” for the Hawaiian Bread recipe. I love this bread but didn’t have a recipe. Just started back to making bread this week and will give the recipe a try soon.

Does “Delores in nela” live in same area as myself, PeggyNELA? I live in western part of Ouachita Parish, just 25-30 miles south of Bren in North Louisiana (she has listed as Farmerville). I love it when the name of Louisiana girls appear.

I know this wonderful recipe is in your archives. Where I do not know. It is called Susan's Special Oatmeal Cookies.

My Dad has had a stroke and I know he would love them. He is actually doing quite well. Just going through rehab to help him walk. I do not know if anyone else saw this wonderful story on Aol, but I actually got to pay ward today.

It seems that someone put an envelope on a Marine's car with 2 twenties and a note thanking this soldier for protecting us. We were both at the doctors. I saw all the Marine stickers and ran back to the doctors for an envelope. I only had $12.00 in cash on me, put in envelope, and was talking to the receptionist when she looked out the window and said they were pulling out. I ran but the driver was so grateful. X-smoker here, but that smile was worth all the huffing and puffing. Pay it forward, gratitude is a wonderful thing. And you will feel even better. Nancy, promise to send in my slow cooker spaghetti in the next several days. Always receive rave reviews and clean plates. A blessed weekend to all. Thanks.

This is for Dr Sara Pico, who asked for sfingi recipes. They are also known as zeppoli, and this is a recipe.

1 package active dry yeast,
2 tbs. sugar
3/4 c warm water
2-1/2 c all purpose flour
1 egg
1/2 tsp. salt
cooking oil for frying

Sprinkle yeast onto water, stir to dissolve and let stand for a few minutes before proceeding with rest of mixing. Break egg into yeast, add sugar, then flour sifted into mixture, then salt. Stir well. When smooth cover and let stand in a warm place until bubbly and doubled in bulk. Beat again and let rise again until doubled. The entire rising will take about 3 hours, but can be left longer. When doubled the second time, heat oil in deep fryer to 400 degrees. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto hot fat, about 3 or 4 at a time. The pieces of soft dough will form their own peculiar shape. When brown on one side turn to brown on other side. Drain on paper toweling. Sprinkle with confectioners sugar. Makes about 30 - 35 zeppole, (or sfingi in Sicily)

Judy in Montana. The Bran Apple Muffin you posted in yesterday's (3/19) newsletter sounds great. Will try it as soon as I get to the store to buy the cereal. I'm happy to report it is over a month now that I have not bought bakery items in the grocery store. Have also started baking my own bread (machine) again.
Thanks, Anita in Camarillo

Nancy, say Hi to your 2 cats from my 4 cats!

Nancy, I am so glad you and the furry ones are doing well.

Jan Illinois was wondering about other uses for the pampered chef pizza stone. I actually have both the round one and the oblong one. They are really good for almost anything you would use a baking sheet for: biscuits, breads, rustic pies etc.
When I use mine for a pizza, I put it into the oven and preheat to 450 to 500, place the pizza on a small sheet of parchment, and slide onto the stone. Makes great, crusty pizza.
